After installing latest Debian Wheezy Linux on my Lenovo Thinkpad Notebook. One of first packages after very basic GNOME install was of course GIMP.
I edit images with GIMP mostly on daily basis, so life without GIMP is impossible…
Debian 7 comes with shiny new version of GIMP – GIMP 2.8. So far so good, but the problem is when started it for a first time, the default configuration is made in a way that it miss essential Gimp Panel Window (The Toolbox Window). Missing Brushes and selectors, move, scissors etc. is something really terrible.
My first guess was I can display it somehow from GIMP's View menu but after few minutes of try/errs I figured out this is not possible.
One menu I managed to displayed Toolbox in some mostly unusubale form, since they were not fitting well my 1024×768 resolution screen is via menus:
Windows -> Toolbox
Since this wasn't what I was looking for I spend some 10 minutes until I finally found "the fix". from menus:
Preferences -> Window Management -> Reset Saved Window Positions to Default Values
